What is Telestroke
When a stroke patient is brought into the emergency room, they need emergency assistance, and a telestroke specialist can provide that. Telestroke is actually an experienced neurologist (stroke or vascular) examining and treating a stroke patient virtually. The neurologist is aligned in real-time with the facility’s or hospital’s staff and helps them deliver timely care to save as many brain cells as possible. Telestroke, or stroke telemedicine, programs are known to save precious lives by reducing the door-to-needle time in facilities and connecting experienced neurologists directly with the hospital’s on-site team. NeuroX Telestroke team uses robust telemedicine equipment along with a reliable telemedicine platform to deliver care without delays. Our neurologists are available within minutes to assist your ED team and ensure precious lives are saved.

Benefits of NeuroX TeleStroke
Treating a stroke patient within the first hour of the onset of stroke symptoms significantly improves the patient’s chances of survival and positive long-term outcomes.
When someone suffers a stroke, 1.9 million neurons die each minute. Therefore, “time is brain” and every single second counts in stroke care. NeuroX’s Telestroke program can help decrease the time it takes to treat stroke patients by significantly improving the last known normal-to-needle and door-to-needle times at your facility.
Our NeuroX Telestroke program also helps increase the number of patients receiving brain-saving clot-busting treatments, including alteplase and tenecteplase. The NeuroX Telestroke program saves lives and improves the care of stroke patients, resulting in no or minimal disability.
